Will you be in Orlando for Spring Break? Take a break from the world class theme parks this Easter Sunday and enjoy a day at one of the four Universal Orlando Resort on-site hotels. With holiday offerings at Loews Portofino Bay, Loews Royal Pacific, The Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Cabana Bay Beach Resort, you can make new memories this year spending Easter away from home.

Let’s take a look at the special events scheduled for Easter at Universal Orlando Resort.

The Hard Rock Hotel will offer a buffet for the whole family to enjoy. At The Kitchen’s Easter buffet, you’ll be able to indulge in carved items including roasted oregano and harrisa rubbed leg of lamb, bourbon and brown sugar glazed ham, as well as breakfast favorites like an omelet and eggs benedict station and oven fresh pastries. This has more of a brunch feel if that is what your family prefers for Easter.

Kids can express their creativity at the cookie decorating station and even have an opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny.
